Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
I found during Christmas shopping it was just too darn heavy, so hubby loaned me his Ruger LCP. I carried it in my front jeans pocket. Worked great. I was borrowing it so much....he got me my own for Valentine's Day (two tone Raspberry/Black).
There are still times when I use the purse carry also. I have real problems with waist carry or shoulder holster. There are many companies that sell excellent carry options for women now. Check some out and get something that fits your frame and lifestyle.
A woman must not depend on protection by men. A woman must learn to protect herself.

A armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one has to back it up with his life.
